Speaking of legal concerns. It is due to the Internet Archive services being located in America that people have these concerns? If so perhaps they should locate them somewhere else.
In the UK at least, copyright on sound recordings only lasts 50 years so anything released from 1958 and before can be openly shared.

"Despite the general rule precluding federal copyright protection for pre-1972 sound
recordings, the 1994 GATT/TRIPS amendments, codified at Section 104A of the Copyright
Act, extend protection to such recordings when they (a) were first published in a country
that is a signatory to the Berne Convention, the WIPO Performances and Phonograms
Treaty, or is a member of the WTO, and (b) were not subsequently published in the
United States during the 30-day period following that initial publication. §104A(f)(6)(C)-
Consequently, these foreign recordings are protected by federal copyright despite their
fixation prior to 1972, and their term of protection is the same as it would have been had
they been protected under U.S. federal law ab initio, i.e., 95 years from publication.
Virtually all works "restored" under this provision will therefore lapse into the public
domain sooner than domestic recordings, which will enjoy state law protection until 2067
regardless of their initial publication date."
SO...there are conceivably some recordings from 1913 or earlier that were published in a country other than the U.S. without being published again in the U.S. within the 30 days following.

The reason Edison records are in the public domain is only because the Edison family deemed them so and no other reason.
That goes for the other songs posted by PublicDomain4U by a variety of artists.
I wish someone could/would prove me wrong as I'd like to use the songs commercially. So if you can, please do.
See what http://PDinfo.com says on the subject.

Blake and Police Dog Blues in 1978 while dating my future husband who is an outstanding blues guitarist. I loaned it out to be re-recorded and never heard it again. That was about 20 years ago. It is pure and clean and I love it all over again!
